Normally I don't get on here to warn you about stuff, but just like everything in life, there are usually some Nihilists lurking about trying to scam the fragile. I saw a link for a Coen Brothers 12 disc box set. Now personally I own 12 of the Coen Brothers' 13 films but I had to check it out. So I went there and couldn't see any details, but found another link that took me here - http://www.tvinthebox.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=67&products_id=199.
I don't know anything about this TV In The Box place, but if you look at the details of this box set, DVD number 3 is Bad Santa. Now while that movie is kinda dirty an hilarious, it was not directed by the Coen Brothers. The closest it gets to a Coen connection is the fact Billy Bob Thorton is the star. The connection is Billy Bob was the main character in The Man Who Wasn't There.
My fears of a scam were even further confirmed when I couldn't find any reference to this box set on Amazon. I say buyer beware and stay away from this.
